Recorded to mark the release of Darksongs 2, the latest solo album by Jeremy Benson, a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter for the New Jersey band Roadside Graves. “Darksongs 2 is comprised of exactly that, darksongs. Now I wouldnt call it a sad bastard type of record, it’s anything but, cause at its heart I walk a way with a sense of hope rather than complete and utter despair….Long and short, its really a beautiful and amazing record” -Captain’s Dead

Like Spinning consists of both Norwegian and English members, based around singer/songwriter Kari Jahnsen. They make "beautiful, lingering melodies coupled with melancholy lyrics reminiscent of Bon Iver and Fleet Foxes, with a definite eery undertone of eccentric ethereality" -ITNO Music
